The Shakespeare & Company series documents Sylvia Beach's business
activities relating to her bookshop in Paris. It includes information on
bookshop inventory, orders and subscriptions, the lending library,
publishing activities, author readings, bookshop exhibits, and the sale of
rare books and manuscripts. Of special interest is the material relating to
Beach's publication of James Joyce, including, in 1922, Joyce's Ulysses , which she distributed as long as it
remained a banned book in England and the United States. The series also
includes files relating to the publication of Joyce's Pomes Penyeach in 1927 and a volume of studies of Joyce's Work in Progress (later incorporated in Finnegans Wake ) by fourteen contributors,
entitled Our Exagmination Round His Factification for
Incamination of Work in Progress .
Arranged alphabetically by topic.
